    Hey Everyone,
    I've been toying around with an idea for the past week or so about honey pots and how they screw us over with XRumer/Scrapebox.

    Albeit scrapebox's big issue is askimet, not exactly a honey pot per se, but works similar to the concept.

    What if we had a script that would automatically unspam comments in WP? That same feature that alerts askimet that the comment is not spam and it was incorrect.

    With the collective resources of the thousands of blogs that people own here at BHW, we could royally screw their algorithms, probably would not be long term, but they would have a hard time banning all the keys associated with thousands of blogs.

    As for XRumer, I'm still monkeying with a way to work around stopforumspam and screw them up in a similar manner.

    Thoughts?

    Interesting idea, have you considered a blacklist for akismet blogs, like how they have a blacklist for spammers, have a list of sites you shouldnt spam? =)

    Yeah, that's a possiblity but, that rules out a large population of blogs.

    And most high traffic (or PR) blogs have Askimet enabled.
